The Ansville Gatehouse - Ch 1
- New Beginnings
Daren, living in the underbelly of the sky city of New Muskegon, his lot in life is bleak. Everyone down here knows their fate is sealed. You either survive by any means or die. Above the clanging of giant gears and engines floats the sky city, where nobody thinks of who lives beneath. The old city doesn’t exist but is in memory. Above lies the class of citizens who parade around, living in luxury and entertaining tourists from all different parts of the country.
Meanwhile, Daren, as fate had it, found the eye of someone in a position to give him the only job available to the likes of him, an employee of one of the biggest companies that build airships. But he knows the truth. He, like everyone else who works in factories, is little more than a slave.
Alicia Alcorin has been running for years. In Windsail City, the capital of Tarkon, she tries to blend in for a while. She’s no fool, though. She knows who pursues her. They will never stop tracking her. She’s too valuable, dead or alive. But here, she allows a little hope inside her jaded, cold, and broken heart.
If the documents from the World Library hold true, she’s close to a gateway that will take her one step further toward her goal. She must find the remnants of Dragonblood and ask for asylum from her family.
But the question remains: will they accept her or kill her outright, knowing who she is? But she has to try. She’s out of options and strength to keep on running.
